This is an awesome camera that I have cleaned up and added fresh batteries. It is in excellent working condition. I have tested it with black and white FP-100C Film.

I have cleaned up the camera itself with rubbing alcohol and a whole lot of Q-tips and cotton balls. This camera is in good condition with no real rust stains that I can see. There is a small scuff on the right side of the front of the camera that you can see in the pictures, but it does not detract from it. I have inspected and cleaned the rollers and moving parts in the camera. I have cleaned out the battery compartment and have added two fresh AA batteries that control both the shutter and the flash cubes. I have gone out and taken some photos with this camera and they are amazing! You can see in the last picture a Polaroid taken with this camera. It's of my Polaroid Wall. This was inside and taken with the flash, so I made sure it works!

I have included a set of Flash Cubes to use with the camera. They are a set of 3 cubes, that have 4 flashes each for a total of 12. They are single use as in after they are used to flash you can't use them again. They are made by Sylvania.


Camera Includes:
Batteries - 2 x AA
Cold Clip
Pack of 3 Flash Cubes

I am currently offering a pack of film that can be used with this camera right away. It is FP-100C color film by Fujifilm. If you order both this camera and film the shipping will be dropped from the film. I will refund you the $3 for shipping once you have purchased both items. You will only have to pay for the shipping of the camera.

Camera History:

The Reporter is a Polaroid self-erecting folding camera for type 80 or 100 instant film. It was made for a few years, from 1977.[1] It is similar to the EE100 of the same time.
It has a 114 mm f/9.2 Polatriplet three-element lens, with front-element scale focusing. This is normally used at f/9.2 for ISO 75 film, and at f/58 for ISO 3000 film. Unlike the EE100, the Reporter also has a '3000 ER' setting in which the lens is kept at full aperture with ISO 3000 film.
The shutter speed is automatically controlled, in the range 1/500 - 10 seconds. There is a tripod bush, and a threaded socket for a cable release for use in low light.
The camera has a socket for flashcubes on the left side, and a diffuser which swivels up min front of the cube when the camera is opened. Two distance ranges for flash are marked alongside the focus scale of the lens, presumably for normal and high-power cubes.
There was a 'special edition' model, The Reporter SE. This has few extra features, however. Whereas the standard Reporter has the strap threaded through slots in the top of the body, the SE has moulded strap-lugs on the top, and was supplied with a wide strap with metal fittings, on which is mounted a development timer. Also, the text on the front plate of the SE is white instead of orange, apart from the 'SE', which is turquoise, as is the release button.



Pack Film for this camera is made by Fuji and can be bought on Amazon.com and other camera specialty stores. You can buy film in black and white as well as color.

You can also find film from the Impossible Project which has different colored hues, but is a little more pricey.

Please let me know if you have any questions.



**** All of my "film tested" cameras are tested with actual film, and not an empty film cartridge to see if it powers up and goes through the motions. I am making sure that everything works (shutter, mechanics, spreader bars, etc.. ), and that the pictures come out and are able to develop. Film is not cheap so that is why the cameras are a little more expensive than some other shops. I am giving you the peace of mind that the camera is definitely going to work when you put unused film in it! ***
